Coxy, Is your cider just apple juice or do you add anything to it?

I've tried home made apple cider and to me it just tastes like apple juice until is sits around long enough, then it tastes like cider to me!

If you want good cider wait for the  late sweet apples and mix them up. I like to make hard cider, it is real easy to make. Here is the first part of a 3 part video I made about making it. At 15% it is awesom.
